Travelers stranded in Dubai after fake agent collected money to get them jobs in UAE (Video)

A fake travel agent has been apprehended after he obtained money under false pretense from people in Ghana seeking to relocate to Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

He allegedly collected money from a group of people with the promise to get them jobs abroad, but he was later discovered to be a scammer.

The travelers reached Dubai airport and were stranded without any place to go because they could not get across to the agent.

Some of them who had informed their family members in Ghana about their travel plans contacted them and shared their dilemma which led to the agent being traced and nabbed before he could flee.

In a video which surfaced on social media, a lady was fuming at the fake agent after he was caught and he acted like he was making an important call.

Some other people could be heard in the background questioning the man for defrauding their people.
